Q3A Master Server Problems

id's Graeme Devine updated his .plan with information on why the Quake III master server may have seemed wonky lately. Apparently some folks are being jerks.
Due to an ongoing flood attack on the authorize server the master server got super slow on responding. For a few weeks we've noticed that it was less than solid, but it wasn't until investigation that the cause was found. Apologies for this.

I'm working on the issue right now, so the master server may appear down today for a few hours starting right about now.


The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is looking into NVIDIA's accounting practices. Storms have been brewing around NVIDIA since the accusations of insider trading last year. Since the Enron fiasco, the SEC is bringing companies with "creative" accounting under far closer scrutiny. Something good might come from Enron after all, besides late night monologue fodder.

No Athlon Bug for Me!

I downloaded a program to read my processor's CPUID just for kicks. Thankfully, I found out that I have the latest revision of the Athlon XP, so it does not have the extended paging bug that earlier Athlon and Duron revisions had.

Other than my BIOS freakout on Tuesday (which, I'll admit, was a pretty big thing since it turned my new box into a paperweight), I've been really happy with my new system. I haven't had any weird crashes, reboots, or anything like that. All the software I've tried to run has worked great. I'm quite pleased.
